PMDG OC not updating PMDG 737NGX to V4 [Solved: Base Version too Old]

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hello there. I have just rebuilt my PC with Windows 10 and P3Dv4.2. Have installed and activated my 737NGX and downloaded the latest version of OC. Each time I start OC, it tells me I have an update to P3D V4. I click install, but it dosnt seem to install as next time I open OC, the new message is there again.

Thanks  Chris

what   does  the update  tell you  to  do, uninstall  the previous  version  and  download    the  latest  version  from  your  account?

It sounds like you have an old base installed and you can't update with the OC. You need to download the latest installer from your account uninstall the current one and install with the new installer.

Thanks Chaps, yes I did have a base installer stored on my drive for the 737NGXv3 and used that. I have since downloaded the latest installer, uninstalled the old 737 and reinstalled the lastest version and all is well. Thanks so much for your help! Cheers  Chris
